Final Voyage


"The Jenny, a vessel which had narrowly escaped being smashed by the ice in the spring of 1893 met an icy doom in March of 1896. She had been caught late in the season by a sudden freeze-over which ice-locked her in the middle of Ephraim Harbor. That next spring the shifting ice crushed her hull. A total loss."

April 1893: During a westerly gale, ice was driven into Eagle Harbor forcing the Jenny against the beach. The Jenny was readily repaired.
